Milan Malpensa Airport is the international airport in the metropolitan city of Milan in northern Italy. It represents 15 million people in Lombardy, Piedmont, and Liguria, as well as many residing in the Swiss canton of Tessin. The airport is situated 49 kilometers (30 mi) northwest of central Milan, adjacent to the Ticino River. The airport has terminal 1 and facility 2, with two runways and a designated cargo terminal.
Official car parks in Malpensa all come under the name of ViaMilano Parking and deliver a variety of short-term and long-term parking lots at both terminals. There is also a reserved section where you can pick up and drop travelers. You can use all of the car parks, no matter what terminal you’re entering, but some of the parking lots are nearer to one terminal than the other, so check out the terminal before you reserve a car park.
Short-term car parks are a smart option whether you are receiving a passenger or dropping them off and would like to reach the terminal and prepare for their arrival or help them with their departure. You can park in short-term car parks for up to 24 hours, although you would have to pay a full day charge after 5 hours.
When you head to the airport to pick up or drop off a traveler, there are places just right outside Terminal 1 on both the arrival and departure levels, where you can rest for 10 minutes free of charge. It is named 10 Minute Zone or 10 Minuti Region. This area is purely a stop area, and you cannot leave your car unattended. If you decide to drive longer than 10 minutes, you will stop in a short-term car park.
The only exception for 10 minutes is where the movement of the customer is compromised. For this scenario, you will continue for up to 4 hours, but you would need to complete a questionnaire before entering or no less than three days after entering the process.
There are four short-term parking spaces on the arrivals level at Terminal 1 and 2 on the exit site. Parking charges are €3.00 for the first hour, €2.00, for the next 30 minutes before you hit the 5th hour. You must incur a complete day fee of €29.00 at 5 o’clock. Payments may be rendered by electronic meters at the airport or in booths.
